Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is polling at 0.3 percent in the current Real Clear Politics average of polls, so he's likely one of the people Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was addressing Monday when he urged others in the crowded GOP field to follow his example and drop out so a smaller field could fight front-runner Donald Trump.

But Jindal, appearing Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," didn't sound too interested. Instead, he said, every establishment Republican officeholder in Washington, D.C., should be resigning.

"I don't think the RNC, the establishment, the donors, should try to pick our candidate," Jindal said. "Every time they try to clear the field it backfires, and conservative activists are on to this."

The party wants to get behind an establishment candidate such as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Jindal said. "The reality is we need to fight for our conservative principles."

Republicans have promised to fight Obamacare, amnesty, Planned Parenthood funding and the Iran nuclear idea, but, "they haven't done any of it," Jindal said.

"We've got lying conservatives and honest socialists," he said. "I wish they'd fight half as hard as the Democrats did for their values."
